Mono County Pile Burning

Pile Burning set near Crestview

Inyo National Forest Notice:

Fire crews plan to take advantage of the wintry weather to burn 53 acres of piles today (Tuesday, January 5th) and tomorrow (Wednesday, January 6th). The Dry Creek Unit is located west of the Crestview Rest Area. Visitors and residents may see smoke north of Mammoth Lakes and west of Hwy 395.
Pile burning safely reduces fuels that can lead to larger, more destructive fires under hot and dry conditions.
